Legal Compliance Specialist, China Team

Western Union Latin America Regional Operations Center
The China Legal Compliance Team was established to assure that Western Union complied with new regulations established in the U.S.A. Patriot Act. I was in charge of contacting customers whose transactions to China exceeded a predetermined amount in order to determine whether the purpose of the transfers as well as the origin of the funds were legal. I was also in charge of preparing and presenting periodical progress reports to the legal team in Denver Colorado. Most of the customers I was required to call were Chinese immigrants who did not speak English, so I was required to conduct most of the interviews in Chinese. Given my Computer Science background, I was asked to develop an application for interview data entry, which automated the reporting process and increased productivity.
